How to Meet your Professors

Meeting professors sounds great – but how can you do that?
I came across this, written by a rabbi, and thought it was incredible advice, regardless of your religious or non-religious bent:
“Whatever class you’re taking, go meet the professor in his or her office. Here’s a secret: Professors are tired of students who only ask about a grade or a test or an assignment. Go see your professors, introduce yourself and ask: How did you get into anthropology? Or chemistry? Or psychology? … Then sit and listen and enjoy. Every professor has a story. Every professor is just waiting for a student to ask. And every professor was driven to his or her discipline by deep passion. More than anything, each wants to share that passion. Go ask.”
